Without Action, Nothing Else Really Matters

“Inaction breeds doubts and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage.” Dale Carnegie

The biggest thing holding you back from success in life is the fact that you do not believe in yourself. You second-guess every move you make. You overthink everything.

Overthinking is a habit. It’s triggered by the fear of uncertainty. The fear is that you will fail if you take action, so you avoid taking action by planning and thinking to the point of inaction.

Those who succeed in life shed this overthnking habit. They take action, fail and make mistakes.

Failures and mistakes enable you to figure out what works and what doesn’t work. Successful people make a habit of overcoming their fear of taking action.

When you take action and survive the failures and mistakes, you gain courage and this empowers you to take more action.
